Episode 015 - Talking Shop with Spadefoot Nursery 

Welcome to Season Three of the podcast! This episode brings us to sunny Tucson Arizona to speak with Katy Gierlach and Jared R. McKinley of Spadefoot Nursery. We talk native plant nursery shop - about being ecologists not horticulturists, getting people to buy ugly plants and weeds, accepting failure, why tomatoes are patriotic if you're Italian, and dumping chicken manure on people's heads. You'll want to tune in. And yes, that's a picture of them.

Hey, if you're digging this podcast, find me on Instagram at @wildplantculture, it's the totality of my social life right now as NJ is snowed in and locked down.

Episode 013 - Dr. Jay Kelly - Restoring Rare Plants 

Today we have a dispatch from the front lines of habitat destruction and deer overpopulation -- New Jersey. But don't despair! We're talking with Dr. Jay Kelly about some remarkable rare plant recoveries and prospects for restoration.

This podcast is brought to you by Wild Ridge Plants, growers and stewards of native plants.

The music at the beginning and end is "The Ship" by my once (and maybe future) band Horse Graveyard. If you like raw, dark, heavy music with a bit of blazing sunshine peering out from the dark clouds... check us out.

Thanks for listening!

Episode 007 - Karl Anderson, NJ Botanist and World Traveller 

Hi Everyone, thanks for joining me for another episode of the Wild Plant Culture podcast. This conversation is with Karl Anderson. Karl's an elder in the best sense -- someone who's lived a full life, delved deep, and come up smiling (and sometimes cursing, too). He's always been generous about sharing his wide interests and experience in natural history. Here, I ask Karl about his life story from a city kid to a draftsman to the director of a nature center. We talk about changes in botany and in the plant world, about sharing vs. secrecy when it comes to rare plants, about being an educator, and about some of his many travels to interesting natural places around North America and beyond. This podcast is brought to you by Wild Ridge Plants. We started Wild Ridge to offer a toolkit for the restoration of native plant communities, including a native plant nursery, botanical surveys and stewardship planning, as well as classes, hikes, presentations and publications. Check us out online at wildridgeplants.com Thanks everyone who has sent feedback or joined the Wild Plant Culture Facebook page. I'm looking forward to hearing from more of you sometime soon, so don't be shy! You can reach me at jared@wildridgeplants.com. This conversation is with Karl Anderson.
